The Beaufort Academy third graders recently toured the SC Statehouse to supplement their curriculum on South Carolina history. During the tour, they were invited to view the House of Representatives by Rep. Shannon Erickson of Beaufort since it was in session. Rep. Erickson introduced the class to the House of Representatives and discussed what she does and how the House is run. The group took part in a guided tour to learn about the history of the Statehouse, then they viewed the chambers. Pictured above are the BA third graders, their teacher Mrs. Aivaz and Rep. Shannon Erickson on the steps of the Statehouse in Columbia, SC.

Sixth grade science teacher Ms. Beach, based on a course she was attending via the Citadel, created “The Citadel Group” at Lady’s Island Middle School. The group, as a part of a term project, created an inclusive project where the students were responsible for the concept, design, implementation and distribution of their project.  The students wanted to raise money to help support the school pantry. They did this by organizing a nursery in the school’s green house and raising seedlings and selling them at the school’s yard sale. Pictured above is Samantha Welty, Sarah Geisler  and Madyson Kytovsky.

The 5th grade students at Beaufort Academy learned how to use a CAD (computer aided design) application, with help from Ms. Reilly and Mrs. Compton. Tinkercad is a web-based 3D design application that the students used to create bag tags for their book bags or luggage. They mastered many skills, such as measuring in mm, inserting text and shapes, creating negative spaces, grouping objects, and scaling. The 5th graders were very excited about the ability to go from design to print after seeing 3D printing in action at their STARBASE experience last month.
